Personal Liberties and Gun Rights
The event was held in a tent at the Kiowa Creek Sporting Club, with many of the attendees smoking cigarettes and drinking beer.
David Martosko and Dave Kope spoke about personal freedoms and gun rights at the Independence Institute’s annual Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms Party that the organization created in protest of what they call the growing “nanny state.” Topics included New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s ban of the sale of any cup or bottle of sweetened drink larger than 16 fluid ounces, the recent Aurora, Colorado, movie theater shooting, and Second Amendment issues.
